This is not only a beautiful park, it also includes Goethe's garden house and the Roman House designed by Goethe for the Grand Duke

I walk through the park on my way to and from work. There are a variety of winding paths and it is a beautiful place. There are lots of historical monuments, statues, and historic homes that are part of the park, so it feels like I am always discovering something new. During summer and number of events and festivals also... More

This isn't just a beautiful park. This is a beautiful park with historical buildings and gardens. There is so much to see. From Russian cemeteries to Goethe's Gartenhaus, a Romanesque home to bombed out ruins. The list goes on. Peaceful and breathtaking. Make sure this park is part of your trip to Weimar.

Like a Jane Austen movie scene. I always love walking through this park. Every time I go to the Ilm Park I say to myself "I live here!" and I am so thankful that I do. So much beauty.

For a smaller city, this is a really great park. Also, Goethe fancied a late-night swim in the Ilm here by his garden house.

I went here to join my grandson's seventh birthday party. The park is well maintained, and has quite an array of sites to visit. It was beautiful and relaxing.

If the time is right, a stroll at this wonderful park is a must. The paths can be a little meandering though, making a straight path impossible, but it's highly recommended anyway

A fresh snowfall that was quickly melting on a sunny day added to the beauty of the park, as spring's buds were just beginning to show. The pavilions and bridges, the river and topography all added to the serenity of a brisk stroll through this large park. A walk down Am Horn on the east side of the park was... More
